Building Banners

Building Banner

I spotted this vinyl banner in Old Quebec, which with it’s historical building requirements can make signage a challenge. What this museum did was mount the banner between two bars on the face of the building. It looked like a pair of heavy duty towel racks!

It’s important to use vinyl banner material that will stand up to the blowing wind in cold weather. Normal vinyl will shatter like glass at temperatures below zero, a real problem in cold weather locations! We use a banner vinyl that’s good to 20 degrees below zero, part of our heritage of making vinyl banners for the ski areas here in New Hampshire.

Window Signage

Window Sign

This sign in a downtown window is interesting. Rather than just say “Space for Lease”, it tells you a fair amount of information about the space, who to contact, and what they would expect from a tenant. That saves everyone some time.

You could just buy a cheap pre-printed sign. But this custom printed window sign gives the prospective tenant a lot more information, and also allows them to self select if, for instance, they have sketchy finances or are unwilling to sign a lease for a year.

With today’s low pricing of digital printing, you can buy a window sign like this for under $50. If it saves you a few phone calls with unqualified buyers, it’s worth the extra expense.

Give us a call if we can make a window sign for you!

Giant Wall Mural

Texas Mural

We printed this 30×70′ giant wall mural for a school being built in Texas a few years back. It looks fantastic, and has everything you think of in Texas: horses, longhorn cattle, oil wells, ranches, you name it! It’s Texas size too.

We do giant wall murals this large by printing them in 4′ wide strips with an inch of overlap. The installer then cuts through both layers in the overlap, pulls the excess away from above and below, and brushes it back down. Everything matches perfectly because both layers were cut at the same time.

Don’t let size intimidate you. We can do giant wall murals of just about any size! Give us a call and let’s talk about your project.

Large Trail Signs

Large Trail Sign

We printed this trail sign for the Green Woodlands area in Dorchester NH. It’s a wonderful area with over 50 kilometers of cross country ski trails. Best of all, it’s free!

I find that it’s really important to have “you are here” markings on trail signs. Having a map is good, but then you come to a junction, exactly which one is it?

These trail signs have the “you are here” markings, and they are 24×36″ size so even us old people can read them without our reading glasses!

We originally printed the trail signs on OmegaBond, a sandwich of aluminum and a plastic core. We recently printed revisions on matte vinyl, which could be dropped on top of the existing signs and were less expensive. Each sign holder has a clear plexiglass face that protects the trail sign.

Museum Graphics

Historical Graphic

I saw a number of museum graphics like this in Symphony Hall in Boston when I went to a concert there. They are interesting because they marry CNC cut graphics with wooden ends and a bowed shape.

As you wander the hall during intermission (or trying to find the bathroom!) you get a sense of the wonderful history of the BSO through these beautifully produced museum graphics.

From the fancy museum graphics like these to relatively simple rectangular displays, we can give you displays that are beautiful and affordably! Give us a call to get yours on order!

Roll Up Sign

Roll Up Political Sign

I saw this Retractable Banner Stand announcing a talk that I attended. They were taking a bit of a chance by putting it outside, but there was little wind and it was sheltered by the building. Normally I would tell you that you shouldn’t use a banner stand such as this one outdoors. Especially on a windy day!

I try to get around to see all of the candidates in the run up to the New Hampshire primary, and I saw most of them this year. It’s fun, and interesting. Many of them used banner stands like this at their events, and for good reason- they are easy to transport and set up, and they don’t require any fixturing at the venue.

We can print and ship a banner stand for you in a day. Give us a call if we can make one for you!

Outdoor Poster Holder

Outdoor Poster Sign

Outdoor Sign Holder

This outdoor sign has a blow molded base that you fill with sand so it doesn’t blow away. I like it! It was outside the Christian Science Church in Boston, which is very much worth a visit.

The outdoor sign itself was a direct printed piece of sintra, which drops into a slot at the top. Usually they put an outdoor sign on both sides so people can read it whichever way they are walking.

We can give you advice on the best choices for outdoor signs. of which there are tons. Give us a call and we’ll get you going!

Single Use Plastic

9 pieces of plastic

Single Use Plastic

So I bought a salad at the Baltimore airport on my way home from Florida. There were 9 pieces of single use plastic that came with my meal, including top and bottom of a plastic box, knife and fork, bag for the knife and fork, single serving pack for the salad dressing and another for some nuts, and the bag the whole thing was given to me in. Yeesh!

You would think that they could cut down on this. How about delivering it in a paper bag, and doing away with the bags that enclose the cutlery. Put the dressing on the salad before they give it to you.

At MegaPrint Inc. we work really hard to keep our plastic waste to a minimum, and to recycle as much as we can. I can only imagine how much could be saved if the fast food industry did the same.

Trade Show Booth Backdrop

Trade Show Backdrop

Booth Backdrop

I went to see Tom Steyer the other day, and he did a nice job of presenting his vision for America. He used a trade show backdrop and a couple of banner stands as graphic backdrops.

Naturally, you don’t want to stand in front of a blank stage, and the trade show backdrop does a nice job of this. You also see a lot of banner stands at political rallies, they are super easy to use. I try to see the presentations of all the candidates leading up to the NH primary.

Portability is a big concern when you are doing a half dozen speeches a day, and both our trade show backdrop and banner stands fit that bill. You can take them down and put them back up in minutes!
